Leonard Marshall, Stillman School executive in residence, is selected for the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame. He is one of eight inductees and joins an elite group of more than 250 men and women honored as Louisiana sports legends since the establishment of the Hall of Fame in 1958.
He emerged as an inductee after a 30-member committee reviewed a 27-page list of credentials compiled by 131 nominees from 21 different categories. Recognized for his outstanding accomplishments, Marshall now takes his place among the state's all-time greatest sports heroes.
For 13 remarkable years, Marshall was a defensive lineman for the New York Giants, New York Jets and Washington Redskins. He has three Pro Bowl and two Super Bowl championships under his belt and was named Defensive Lineman of the Year in 1985 and 1986.
While he was making headlines on the field, he was also building a future as a successful entrepreneur. Marshall is currently vice president of philanthropic development for Seeman Holtz, Inc., a wealth management and financial services company. He also launched the Leonard Marshall Football Academy in Boca Raton, a camp geared toward football players ages 8 -18.
Marshall's formal induction into the Sports Hall of Fame took place in June, 2008, in Natchitoches, LA.
